This argument is beyond you, you are better than this. Nothing is secret in the nfl just like we know who we looked at for coach and so on.

u have so many other things to whine over in regards to Ireland's decisions, but the Vontae trade isn't something u can complain about. it was a good trade.

As for the Vontae trade . Carrol , patterson and Marshall are not better corners than Davis. If they felt so strongly they should have moved Vontae much sooner.In fact overall Smith has never been a better corner than Davis. Davis may have been out of shape and lazy but people are revising history and making these guys out to be better corners than Vontae. Davis may very well go into the tank but lets not act like his play at corner has been a big problem and that having carrol as the nickel is better for our defense than at worst Vontae.
I wasnt arguing with anyone on receiver . If anyone thinks there were not better options at receiver than what we added fine , it not based in reality but hell have your opinion.
Our third leading receiver has like 6 receptions. Here is a kicker for u. Chad Johnson, Anthony Armstrong, Ricardo Wallace and BJ Cunningham are not even on NFL 53 man rosters right now and only Cunningham is even close to holding an NFL job on the practice squad. The guy we gave up on after one year Edmund Gates has more receptions than every one outside of Hartline and Bess combined and he is not that good.
We had a bigger hole at receiver than any other position to begin our offseason and we addressed it with scraps.
Vonte Davis you are wrong on he was a good pick when we picked him and I agree better than Smith but he sourered the longer he stayed and no GM can control that. It falls on coaching.
I believe that Gates was part of the plan here and he would have stuck under Tony but just could not develop under this system but he was not drafted for this system either.
